One thing that should be mentioned is that Valentia seems to run on a Hyrule Economy. Be prepared to cut some grass/boxes/jars/coral/etc... for Silver Marks and Side-Quest items.

Also currently heading into Part 3.

The term Hyrule economy cracks me up.  Indeed, the country's deficit seems to be in jars. :P

A) WRPGs and JRPGs are absolutely a non-arbitrary distinction based solely on the style of game (not their dev location).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Western_role-playing_video_games

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Eastern_role-playing_video_games

along the lines of distinguishing between horizontal and vertical shmups.

B) I wasn't trying to call out not-natros-anymore specifically. we cool.

Damnit, Crunchyroll?! Now you put Gundam Seed online? Mere weeks after I jumped through all sorts of hoops to watch that ambitious (and recappy) disaster...

... I'll forgive you if you add Zeta to the catalogue.

Well, it helps that they had an HD remaster a few years back. I'd still love me some Zeta Gundam, though...

Yeah, this Jrpg/Wrpg nonsense needs to be ended. They aren't styles of rpgs, and how is it western is even a description of a role playing game. Action, turn based, strategy, tactical...these are types of rpgs. Cultural influence doesn't describe the rpg's play style. We don't have japanese platformers or western action games. Tetris isn't a russian puzzle game (actually I think it's a russian life simulator, nyuk nyuk).

I'm running with this as personal opinion, don't take it like I'm trying to change the world or anything.

I had (mistakenly?) assumed you were calling me out for having a double standard. Were you speaking in a general sense? If so, disregard my pompous mini tirade. And the answer is because the world's various populations are also riddled with double standards.

FWIW Dark Souls is a WRPG developed in Japan.

So why is ok for that to work one way across the pacific but not the other?

MMmmm.. PC bait. *NOM NOM*

Personally, I have no problems having double standards in a case like this. I'm not actively persecuting anyone, and I really don't think too much about offending overly sensitive people that I don't know, anyway. I like to keep life simple, because I sure as shit have enough to worry about as it is.

It totally works the other way.  See: Cosmic Star Heroine.


Not trying to offend anyone, but sweating such minute details that almost always come down to a matter of opinion between argumentative ding dongs is not my thing.
I love this sentence so much that I don't even remember what we were talking about.
